I like working.  Honestly, I do.  I just have a hard time getting motivated to go to work.  Well, one would think that leaving your house well over an hour in advance to get to you job at the mall during Christmas would be enough time right?  Wrong.

First of all, the weather here is absolutely horrendous.  When I say horrendous, I mean that the storm we’re going through now makes a monsoon look like a slight drizzle.  Anyway, Louisiana weather sucks enough as it is, as do the roads.  I drove through flooded road after flooded road to finally get to the mall.  Great!  I still had a half an hour to spare.  Fabulous!  Wrong.

The police decided to be douche bags today and block every…single…entrance to the parking garages.  The ones that were open were filled to the brim with cars.  The level ground parking was full as well.  There was absolutely no parking whatsoever.  I call work and tell them that there is no parking available.  They tell me “too bad.  You’re fired.  It’s not a good enough excuse.”

So, I lost my job this afternoon after driving through a monsoon and a half, police being dicks, and my work being absolutely unreasonable.  Yay, Christmas Holidays!

    The weather is a bitch somedays. Most abusive Mistress ever. I’ve had the same day. I actually left an hour early and got stuck in my OWN driveway. THat sucked.

    I’m really sorry to hear about your job, though. I’m sure you could find a better job than people who would fire you without a good reason. (Weather, to me, isn’t a good reason.)

    Holy shit! What douchebags! I’m sorry you lost your job, babe. I don’t envy your weather conditions at all. I hope you get a job soon. *hugs*
